In case you (or others) don't read that Shaw forums, Mark said the slow guide issue should hopefully get fixed when the second half (modem part) of the update comes out. It's scheduled from the 20th to the 28th.

Love that I can cancel and delete a current recording show (end of late night talk shows) while they're still recording in two clear pushes.

(was getting a small delay when skipping ahead, but reboot BOTH gateway and portals and that seems to have fixed it)

Does anyone else have a slight delay when skipping ahead now after this upgrade? I thought I had fixed it with a reboot, but I keep skipping too far ahead because there's a small delay when continuously skipping ahead now.

Oh yes, skipping forward and back is delayed and quite annoying.

Something is wrong with the update, if that is the case. That never got affected with the update that we received.

As for the guide issues, I'm experiencing the "half-loaded" guide lots of the time, sometimes it refills a second later, sometimes a few seconds. I've even had it be blank, just the column with the channels, the times across the top and nothing else for a few seconds.

Did they not perform any regression testing on this update? The guide is appalling right now. Hopefully the modem update sorts the issue out as they suggest it should.

Looks like my modem software is updated. Firmware Version #7.14.57 . Guide definitely better. I no longer get blank lines. Guide is now responding normally as expected.

I asked (or tried to) on the Shaw community forums when the Remote App would be made publicly available now that the firmware updates are done. Comment allowed but moved to new thread, then content rejected. I really don't understand why Shaw will not give an estimated date. Leads me to believe the next excuse will be coming soon from Shaw. Just brings me one step closer to cancelling cable and selling the gateway.

The answer is actually; Sooner than you think.

If you can then do rather than not. You're your own worst enemy. They're parking their car over there.

It can't be sooner than I think - I thought it was going to be out in Nov 2013 as advertised ! But seriously - hopefully soon. Just really bad communication again - from a communications company.

^ Remote App Out now!

The main reason for the delay was so we could both launch an iOS and Android version.

Shaw Employee, Opinions are my own unless otherwise stated.
